Kathryn Ramey: White Women Are a Curse Against Their Sex

Run Time: 105 min.

Revolutions Per Minutes Festival Presents

Filmmaker in Person!

RPM and The Brattle present a solo screening program of Kathryn Ramey’s work, titled “WHITE WOMEN ARE A CURSE AGAINST THEIR SEX : films from 30 years of making against the cisheteropatriarchy by a person living with a uterus.”

In the upcoming watershed moment of taking away women’s rights by the United States Supreme Court decision, the program features Kathryn Ramey’s seven pieces ranging from the earliest piece, STORY OF SARAH, made in 1993 to SAYOR, the most recent piece.

The program highlights her filmmaking praxis as a resistance to the collusion of white college educated women in the racist transphobic ableist patriarchy and condemns Amerikkka in the 21st century. Kathryn Ramey defines/(reminds us) what’s the meaning of a creative person living with a uterus. Her films are known for hand processing and multiple exposure through painstakingly optical printing. Most works will be shown in their original format of 16mm or 35mm.

Kathryn Ramey is a filmmaker and anthropologist whose work operates at the intersection of experimental film processes and ethnographic research. She is a recent recipient of Guggenheim fellow, LEF Foundation fellow and Creative Capital grantee. For more info please visit rameyfilms.
